1996 Volkswagen Cabrio Question: It Wont Start

I recently let the battery die due to age and lack of use, when I replaced it I had hoped to just turn the key and have it start like it did last fall. All of the electronics seem to be working but i get absolutely nothing when i turn the key, not so much as a click. Any ideas? Could this be alarm related? I really cant afford to take it to VW right now and i hate to waste the good weather. -
Answer 1
Check the battery terminals for corrosion and make sure they are clean and tight -
Answer 2
You may need a new alternator -

I am working a 2001 V.W. Cabrio and we stuck a new battery in but now it is not starting when I turn the Key. At first I thought it was just the battery but now I'm wondering if it is also the star...
